Behind the Scenes

2023 17 SingleLightSource 1069 marco ciavolino BTS post


This week we are challenging ourselves to use a single light source to illuminate a subject. This is a practice in directing light and is the first step towards shaping, or at least identifying, quality light on your subject, as opposed to just grabbing a photo and hoping it looks good. But don't be intimidated! This can easily be achieved with household items like a flashlight, lamp, or even a window. By focusing on a single light source, we can create a sense of depth in our images, by controlling the light, and creating mood and atmosphere with the strong shadow side! The choice of light source can also help to convey the story or message behind the image, a hard light will give you a more dramatic look while a soft light will yield a softer, more tranquil feel. This is also a great opportunity to experiment with different lighting techniques, such as backlighting or silhouetting. Please note that while the sun is technically a single light source, we are looking for control and intentionality this week. We encourage the use of natural light by guiding the natural sunlight through a window, or a hole in the wall, so it's obviously a directional single source of light. But just going outside during the day, and rationalizing that everything is lit by the sun, is not the intentionality we are looking for this week.
